Scope: 

ArchiveOne Enterprise, all versions

Answer:

Once you have installed and configured ArchiveOne Enterprise, there is certain data that you should backup to ensure that you can recover your ArchiveOne implementation in the event of a system failure. The following locations must be backed up for disaster recovery purposes:
  • Add-ins share
  • The Add-ins share contains configuration data for your ArchiveOne implementation.
  • The default location of the Add-ins share is: \\Configuration_servername\Add-insTemporary Data location.
  • The temporary data location contains a number of shares including the offline pseudo-repositories for Laptop Client users.
  • The default location for temporary data is the installation directory (by default, C:\Program Files (x86)\Barracuda\ArchiveOne) however you may have modified this. You can confirm the current location by running the System Configuration Wizard from the ArchiveOne Admin console.
  • Repositories contain all your email data archived by ArchiveOne. Repositories consist of both data and index directories and can be located on any NTFS, SAN or NAS device. Any location containing repository data should be backed up. To confirm the repository storage locations, check the Mailbox and Journal repository properties from the ArchiveOne Admin console.
  • If you are using Advanced Discovery, you should also backup the Litigation repository location. This can be determined by running the System Configuration Wizard from the ArchiveOne Admin console.
  • File level back ups are sufficient for this data.SQL databases.
  • Ideally all four databases in the SQL instance should be backed up. However, the C2CBrowseArchiveFolders and AOnePartitionData can be resynchronised from the repositories in the event of a DR. The other two databases must be backed up (C2CAOneConfig and AOneAudit) as this data is non-recoverable.
  • The C2CAOneConfig database contains configuration data for your ArchiveOne implementation e.g. the users defined in the Mailbox Manager, and the discovered PST files.
  • The AOneAudit database contains information about audit events.
  • The C2CBrowseArchiveFolders database contains information for populating the folders and messages view on the AOneSearch website. If necessary, this data can be resynchronised from the repositories in the event a backup is not available.
  • The AOnePartitionData database contains information about the repositories index files which is used for search optimization. If necessary, this data can be resynchronised from the repositories in the event a backup is not available.
